About Mapster

Mapster is a very simple world map enhacement addon, which was designed to work in conjunction with all other map addons out there. The idea to create Mapster originated from pure lack of a simplistic addon that only modifies the world map, without adding a full scale feature set.

Features

  • Map Style (Scale & Alpha)
  • Coordinates
  • Fog of War removal
  • Enhancement of the raid/party group icons
  • Access to the Instance Maps from anywhere!

You can access the Mapster configuration menu through the new button on the world map, as shown in the screenshot. All features (except the style) can be turned off individually if you do not need/want them.

If you're looking for a replacement to Cartographer, i also recommend the following addons:

    This addon is working fine for me. It is an interaction with another addon - possibly another map addon. As I said on page 3, when i disabled the LUI Map module, the world map started working properly. YMMV though of course.
  • #845
    This addon does not work
  • #844
    I don't understand the problems people are having with this. I have had zero problems with this add on since the last update, without having to do any lua edits.
  • #843
    why no update?
  • #842
    really dissapointed. Installed, hit M, and everything dissapeared as though I had hit ALT+Z. Will be deleting and not using.
  • #841
    Please Update
  • #839
    please update this! does not work with the new patch. i would be sooooo appreciative :)
  • #840
    Please take a look at some posts below describing how to fix it.. atleast to a working degree..

    I asume this addon is no longer maintained, so no features or anything will be added..
  • #838
    I find it very frustrating that, when you're looking at the Map, that you can't Zoom In or Zoom Out; can this please be updated?
  • #836
    I can't get the hide border to work. It is showing as greyed out and I can't seem to get it to work. I'm using the most recent version 1.4.1
  • #835
    I don't think mapster will be updated, if it gets to 6 months of not being updated you can say mapster is dead, i could be wrong about it, also i'm still getting LUA error after changing it from 40100 to 40200 and putting in ["Firelands"] = 800, ["Molten Front"] = 795,
  • #837
    I did the fix above (just as described by Adorada21 below).

    What i did to fix errors with LibBabbleZone was to copy LibBabble-Zone-3.0 from Atlasloot (the folder), and replace the folder under mapster/Libs/LibBabble-Zone-3.0.
    Then i edit the LibBabble-Zone-3.0.lua file in WordPad, and insert :
    ["Molten Front"] = "Molten Front",
    directly under the ["Molten Core"] entry. The newer version from Atlasloot already has Firelands added in, but did not have Molten Front.

    Atleast for me this stopped the errors and Mapster is now seemingly functioning as it should.
  • #833
    Sorry 3 months not being updated
  • #834
    Will it ever gonna be updated? I really like this addon that you has created
  • #832
    Hi all, I'm new to this forum, Mapster is a Brilliant addon and not being updated for 2 months, i feel its going the same way as Cartographer which i used to use and it was just tossed aside and left to die. A 4.2 update would be nice.
